The future of music may not lie entirely in music itself, but rather in the way it encourages and extends, rather than limits the aspirations and ideals of the people, in the way it makes itself a part with the finer things that humanity does and dreams of.

About Me

I am the manager of the Music and Arts store in West Knoxville, TN. I'm excited to join the musical community in Knox county and look forward to helping everyone from musical inititiates taking their very first lessons in our store, to accomplished educators and bandleaders looking to expand their stock of professional instruments. 

As a classically trained tenor, I have had the fortune of singing with North Carolina based choirs such as Sine Nomine and the Carolina Catholic Chorale, as well as the Southern Appalachian Chamber Singers, community groups, and church choirs throughout North Carolina. Classical music in all its forms- piano sonatas to oratorios- have been an integral part of my musical journey, informing much of the way that I listen to and explore music. 

Outside of the classical realm, my twin brother Josh and I make up an acoustic duo cleverly called The Darnells. He plays piano, I play guitar, we both sing, and its mostly stripped down covers of 90s alternative rock. Pretty fun stuff.

My expertise is primarily in vocal music and pedagogy, classical repertoire, acoustic, electric, and bass guitars. My experienced staff and I would love to help you with any of your band and orchestral needs as well. Feel free to contact me with any questions you have about our products and services. I look forward to helping you with your next- or first!- musical endeavor.
